About the Book. Chilton County and Her People is about a area in Alabama that was settled early in the history of the United States of America. Originally Autauga County, then Baker County, then finally it became Chilton County.   She served her people as both healer and advisor her whole life. This biography, with its maps, drawings, and photographs packs a fair amount of information into its pages. The narrative isn't quite smooth, though, as we learn only midstream that Iron Eye had a wooden leg, the lack of detail about Susan's marriage is surprising, the Author: J. L. Wilkerson.

  This story is not only a tale of the many twists and turns in her life, but also a great introduction to the Cherokee people and the struggles that they endure. Wilma mankiller is not one who will be remembered in history outside of her tribal circles, but her story is an important one. One person found this helpful. Get this from a library! Mankiller: a chief and her people. [Wilma Mankiller; Michael Wallis] -- Wilma Mankiller, Chief of the Cherokee Nation, tells her personal story and honors and recounts the complex history of the Cherokee Nation. Details the dawning of the Native American civil rights.

Harriet Tubman (born Araminta Ross, c. March – Ma ) was an American abolitionist and political activist. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some 13 missions to rescue approximately 70 enslaved people, including family and friends, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. Esther is described in all versions of the Book of Esther as the Jewish queen of a Persian king Ahasuerus. In the narrative, Ahasuerus seeks a new wife after his queen, Vashti, refuses to obey him, and Esther is chosen for her king's chief adviser, Haman, is offended by Esther's cousin and guardian, Mordecai, and gets permission from the king to have all the Jews in the kingdom killed.
